Driving traffic to your blog is one of the best ways to get visitors to your blog, but how do you convert those visitors to loyal readers, who are so interested in your blog that they choose to subscribe to it?
Every blogger wants to see the number of subscribers to his or her blog grow. But you have to do somethings in order for your subscribers number grow.
Ask yourself these two questions: So what do I have to do in order to gain more on my rss feed? What is the most effective way to increase my rss subscribers?
Follow these six simple tips to increase the number of RSS subscribers to your blog’s feed.
Tips To Increase Blog Subscribers
Write Great Content
No one will want to return to your blog if your content is updated sporadically or has nothing original to say. Keep your blog’s content fresh and establish a tone for your blog, then stick to it. Readers want to feel connected to you. Blogging is a two-way conversation, so inject some personality into your content, provide valuable and meaningful content to your readers and develop a conversation with your readers. Blog’s that can achieve those goals are ones that will find loyal readers who are likely to subscribe to that blog’s feed.
Make It Easy to Subscribe
Once you have great content you don’t need to hide your subscribe here button or subscribe here box. You need to make this visible so that your readers can easily subscribe to your contents for regular updates. The top of the page is a great place for your subscription icon. You may also want to put a subscription link between your blog posts, you are sure to get many readers this way after they have finished reading an article.
Use Eye Catching RSS Icons
As they say, a picture tells a thousand words, so why not use a great RSS icon to catch your readers eyes so they can sign up.
Offer a Freebie to Subscribers
A great way to increase the number of subscribers to your blog is to offer subscribers something extra such as a free gift or additional information that could be helpful to them.
For example, you may want to send subscribers a free e-book that provides additional information about your blog’s topic or a free newsletter.
Blog readers loves freebies and the more you can give to them, the more they will subscribe.
Showing the Number of Subscribers
Once you have generated lots of traffic and subscribers to your blog, no doubt you would like to show off the number of readers that has subscribed to your blog.
For example, if your blog has over 100 subscribers and the number keeps rising, you can show that figure on your blog (Feedburner provides code to do this automatically). Once you reach that number of subscribers that you are satisfied with, start to advertise your popularity by displaying it on your blog.
Regular visitors are likely to see that number and say, “If 500 other people think this blog is good enough to subscribe to, then it must be good. I better subscribe, too.”
Asking Your Readers To Subscribe
It’s not illegal to ask readers to subscribe. Sometimes a gentle reminder is all it takes to encourage someone to subscribe to your blog. Consider including a request at the end of your best blog posts saying, “If you enjoyed this post, why not subscribe to my feed?” Of course, include a link to your feed subscription page to make it as easy as possible for your readers to act on your reminder.
